Pitching for Funding

Researchers from other divisions are also welcome to participate

Those with funding need to know about you and why they should place their investment in you and your venture. This may be a pitch for research funds, a pitch in an enterprise competition or a presentation asking for an R & D budget. It is a skill that is much needed for the next career step.
This interactive course will use your research as a starting point but feel free to come with a business venture idea too.

This course will cover: * The structure and elements of a pitch * What different funders are looking for in a pitch * Opening and closing your pitch * Team pitching * The use of props * Making your message clear

Objectives: by the end of this session participants will have: * Practised a variety of pitch elements * Thought about the audience and meeting their needs * Explored the structure and elements of a pitch * Received feedback
